After 7 channel four mostly broadcasts documentaries such as the sex education show, adult humour such as 2 broke girls and new girls. These mostly aim at male and females ages 16-21 as they would have been more influenced on these types of subjects and also the sex education show would appeal to 16 and overs. Also mostly children aged 15 and under would be going to bed as there would be school the next day
Channel 4oD Also on channel 4oD if you was to watch a show like sex education show, a parental control top up would show up and would ask to confirm whether you are 16, 17 or 18 and over. Therefore these shows are shown on TV at a later time.

ITV player The site would warn you that there would be adult humour in the show.

Chosen channel My chosen channel is channel 4 because: It appeals to the same audience I want which is teenagers ages 16+ The documentaries that they show most of the time have the same genre that I want to do. Such as: My big fat gypsy wedding. Also I would like to show my documentary at 10pm which is when all documentaries are shown on channel 4.
Channel 4 documentaries-chosenchannel My big fat gypsy wedding It is broadcasted every Tuesday at 9pm. The audience would be girls from the age of 16 as the girls in the show are mostly aged at 16 and would get married at that age. They would be curious to know about the different culture.
Supersize vs. super skinny comes on also every Tuesday at 8pm. This would appeal to adults and also teenagers from age 16 As the parents of the children would want to watch this to get advice if their child is in danger And also the teenagers aged 16 would want to watch this because they also want advice for themselves
